Turn around reverend, you are preaching to the choir!
Just bought a brand new rad for my Son's Yukon on Ebay and it was $100 shipped to my door...
Not sure about special but it seems these are a bit different than the standard setup as these have 2 radiators, one is an intercooler and the other is for the engine (primary & secondary but the coolant is not exchanged between them) did see an aftermarket one on Ebay from some diesel specialist, all aluminum, billet and the like and it was $900.
From what I have read everybody seems to have a leak where the aluminum core is crimped to the plastic tank seam, bad design it would seem... (pun intended)
